Hello Simple Stories fans!  I hope you are enjoying the December Daily Blog hop, if you are following the blog hop in order you just came from Jill Cornell's blog.  The designers have done an amazing job on their December Daily's!  Well for my December Daily I made a project that will become my December Daily once it is used.  I made an Advent calendar or Countdown to Christmas.

 
This is still a work in progress, I am going to post the back side at the end of the week.  This is a very easy project.  All you need is fabric, 4 page protectors 12 x12 with 4 x 6 pockets, two regular 12 x 12 page protectors, bag handles and Simple Stories Handmade Holiday.
 
 
For each of the 4 x 6 pockets I made little folders to go in each one and each pocket holds journaling cards.  This way I can journal each day and place photos or memorabilia in the pockets and at the end of  December I should have everything I need to fill my album. 
 
 
I hope you enjoyed my project! Your next stop is Rebecca Keppel's Blog.

Oh my goodness...that is amazing! I love the concept of "collecting" all of the goodies for your album in such an adorable and organized way. Do you have more detailed instructions on how you made this...like dimensions etc.. I am inspired to give it a try! Thanks for sharing your project!

Anastacia said...

Interesting project!

wendy said...

Loved your idea for this project. Cute!

a310fac4-2fab-11e2-bef5-000bcdcb5194 said...

I love this idea! It would work well with other countdown -- a wedding!! Or, for a vacation you could use the same set up but not do the wall hanging. If you'd take the pages/folders with you and place items in each day, when you get home you'd have everything organized and handy for your album. I also love this idea because it's simple during the season but will allow you to easily create your album when we're in the long dark cold days of January.

Thanks for sharing!

Keianna said...

This is very clever.

cherylane said...

Such a great idea! I pinned it for future reference :)

Wendy said...

Darling idea! Once your album is completed, you could save and use this again next year.
